I thought I’d share another little DIY with you. This ended up taking a little longer than i thought, but i started because I disliked the cover so much. Basically i tried painting the cover first and let’s just say it didn’t end well. So I scrapped that and went back to the drawing board.
Step One: Rip the cover off.
Step Two: Cut and Paste card stock or some other thick paper on as the new cover.
Step Three: Add a design. This part you can do whatever you like, but I actually used a magazine cutout. I measured about an inch for the front and back, accounted for the spine of the book and then glued that on too.
It’s a pretty easy DIY, as long as you don’t try to paint it like I did, it turns out just fine.
